Too bad she's doing it for her Facebook friends, not her precious little snoflake*...

Her kid trades them for cupcakes as soon as he gets to school.

listen lady, you're a little late to the party and you're just Facebook whoring.

Coolest. Dad. EVAR

link is dead, but that story FROM 2 YEARS AGO is about Kai Wilken

and I'm not saying he was the first either, but once someone grabs internet attention for doing something, every later instance is perceived as copycat attention whoring.

Clearly, Ma Kosti's very distant ancestress.

No way that kids eats all that raw broccoli and cauliflower, and I think the ninja turtle's face was a lime. YUM! Mom gave me half a raw lime for lunch, joy!

I'm not in the least surprised how FARK takes the least sympathetic point of view about this mom's lunch making efforts.
I also feel that she is probably an attention whore.
*sigh*
Carry on..

Look again. It is a section of pear.

This is done in Japan and is called bento it can get very competitive among the moms.

I just noticed that half of the "meals" they show contain pretty much only fruit, vegetables and crackers or pretzels. Thanks for the afternoon shakes, mom.

And don't forget that they are given enough time to make lasting creations.

// how bored do you have to be before you spend hours making Jr's lunch?
 
2012-04-30 11:59:44 PM  
Then there is a meal like this.

Second thing I thought of.

First being that some official has got to have a problem with it.

Do note that the mom's quote in the article actually refers to it as a bento... They're certainly neat, but it's not exactly new.

After her masterpiece goes off to school....a couple of pills...a bottle of wine....and sobbing uncontrollably in an empty kitchen for a few hours.

I think it's cool that she does it.

I think it's not cool that someone felt the need to write an article about it.

Do cool things with your kid FOR YOUR KID, not for other people to see how cool you are with your kid.

Ends up she isn't a stay at home since the mommy wars flamed in the comments section, so you may now make a comment about overcompensating working mom guilt.
